    Nha Trang Attractions


    Suoi Do Pagoda is a 50-year-old Buddhist temple in Nha Trang that was built in honour of Quan Am, the Chinese Goddess of Mercy. Set atop a mountain in Suoi Hiep Commune, the structure is an interesting landmark thanks to its serene atmosphere and significant history of Buddhism in the coastal town.

    It is believed that a young girl claimed to have seen the goddess while playing with her friends at a stream which runs down the mountain. Soon after, Suoi Do Pagoda was built nearby the stream, where it continues to serve the local Buddhist community to this very day. Do note that the pagoda is packed with worshippers every 15th day of the lunar month, when visitors get to enjoy a free vegetarian meal.

  • It takes about 200 steps to reach the pagoda with no wheelchair facilities available, so travellers with physical disabilities or health problems may find it challenging to visit the temple. Once you’ve reached the top, you’ll be greeted with plenty of trees and a natural pool as well as panoramic views of the Cai River Valley, paddy fields, banana plantations, and neighbouring hills.

    Suoi Do Pagoda is accessible within a 30-minute drive from the city, though it’s best to ask locals for directions or join a tour due to its hidden locale. As any holy places around the world, it’s important to be mindful of your attire before making your way to the temple. Photography is allowed, but refrain from making too much noise as it may disrupt the monks praying in Suoi Do Pagoda.
